This chant was recorded at Mandala Yoga ashram, November 2019 by Swami Nishchalananda and a few of the ashram team.
Purnamadaha is the Shanti (peace) Mantra from the Ishavasya Upanishad. The Sanskrit, followed by a translation is as follows:
Om Purnamadaha Purnamidam Purnat
Purnamudachyate Purnasya Purnamadaya
Om Shanti Shanti ShantihIshavasya Upanishad
Swamiji paraphrases the translation as……
‘The mysterious affirmation that One minus One still leaves One’
…. and gives the literal translation as
Om. That is the Full. This is the Full.
From the Full, the Full is taken, and the Full has come.
Even though the Full is taken from the Full, still the Full remains.
Om Peace Peace Peace
